Below you will find the 2014-2015 fee schedule:

1.ODAC's Training Fees are competitive with all area clubs. Multiple-swimmer discounts are made available to those families with more than one child in the program. Fees are based on a twelve-month pay schedule starting in September.

2.Each family will be charged a $100.00 non-refundable registration fee when registering each year.

3.An ODAC team swimsuit and swim cap (if needed) are the only required equipment to participate in meet. Other apparel and equipment are available, and recommended, depending on the age and commitment level of a given swimmer.

4.Bingo is the main fund-raising activity of ODAC. This activity is the main reason ODAC is able to offer the quality program that it does. The obligation for a family with a swimmer that is 9 years of age and older is approximately one night every three to four weeks. This involvement has created the financially stable situation ODAC presently enjoys. ODAC appreciates the ongoing efforts of its membership and welcomes any interested families to see what ODAC is all about.
